The party is traveling to their next destination when a rather loud and familiar voice can be heard nearby...Luke, and his rather dedicated escort, Silas, are also traveling in the same direction. Though Luke is glad to be away from Tear, Silas insists that he stay with Luke until they reach the town. Suddenly, Melissa and her band of underlings swoop in to attack the group. Just as the group is struggling, however, a dashing figure enters the scene!

| The "Plea of the Earth" is a legend told in a distant land. |
This is one tale of what transpired afterwards.
A tale of a chance meeting with a certain swordsman...
|Sara||We've got a ways to go before we reach the next town. But if we push ourselves, we can make it before sundown.|
|？？？？|| I finally managed to ditch the mouthy one, and now I have you escorting me! Why can't everyone just leave me alone? |
Please try to understand my situation, Master Luke. I have my orders.
|Luke||Shut up shut up SHUT UP. I'm so tired of hearing about people's orders!|
|？？？？||*sigh* Of all the lousy jobs...|
|Sara|| That voice... |
Is that you, Luke?
|Luke||Oh, hey, it's Sara! It's been a long time.|
|Lippy||Not since that incident in Sairan, if I recall correctly.|
|Sara||It's good to see you. How's Tear? Are you no longer traveling together?|
|Luke||Tear went home, finally! She was nothing but trouble after that. I was so glad to be rid of her.|
|？？？？||Are these acquaintances of yours, Master Luke?|
|Luke||Yeah, that one's Sara. The dog thing is Lippy. And that guy is (user).|
|Silas|| My name is Silas. I have been tasked by the crown with escorting Master Luke to Gradd. |
I was told he is a prince of some importance, and that his safety is a top priority.
|Sara||Whoa, that's crazy! We're headed to Gradd too!|
|Luke||Then come with us! I don't know if I can stand another minute of Silas prattling on about his "orders."|
|Silas||I apologize if my conversation has bored you, Master Luke. I merely intended to give you an honest answer.|
|Luke||Blah, blah, blah. Come on, (user). Let's go!|
|Silas|| M-Master Luke! Please! You mustn't run ahead like that! |
Damn it! What does it take to get through to him!
|Sara||He was pretty hard on Tear. I guess Silas isn't faring any better.|
|Luke||What? Who the hell...!|
|Silas||Bandits? State your business!|
|Sara||I know you! The bandits from Mt. Harnica!|
|Melissa||Well, well. A mewling rich boy traveling with a bunch of kids. It's our lucky day!|
|Luke||Who the hell are you? How do you know Sara?|
|Melissa|| Oh, I wouldn't say we know her well. She had a little fun with us a while ago, and we're eager to repay the favor. |
Underlings! Seize them!
|Melissa||The ransom on the rich boy will make us a fortune! And I know we're all eager to settle up with the brats!|
|Sara||There's more of 'em now than before... Luke, Silas... Be careful!|
|Silas||If you lay one finger on Master Luke, I will make you pay!|
|Luke||S-Seriously! Stay back!|
|Melissa||Don't be intimidated! We have them outnumbered and overpowered!|
|Silas||Damn it! There's too many of them... Master Luke...!|
|Lippy||Oh my... What is this?! The bandits are falling like cut grass!|
|Guy||Enter the amazing Guy!|
|Guy||Looks like you've gotten yourself into a bit of a pickle here, Luke.|
|Luke||Oh, shut up! I didn't "get myself" into anything! These twits just attacked me!|
|Guy||Well, that I can believe. Guess I'll have to kick their butts for you, then!|
|Melissa||One pretty boy joins the battle against us and suddenly the tide turns? Damn it! Underlings! Retreat!|
|Luke||Great to have someone around who knows what to do with a sword! Unlike that worthless Silas.|
|Silas||*pant* *pant* F-Forgive me...|
|Guy||Well, they didn't land a hit on you now, did they? Let's call a win a win.|
|Sara||May I ask what you're doing here, Guy?|
|Guy||I heard about the bandits and wanted to make sure there wasn't any trouble. I never imagined I'd run into Luke!|
|Luke|| You're surprised? How do you think I feel? Where the hell have you been all this time?! |
You just disappeared without saying a word to me!
|Guy||Ah, that. I had my reasons.|
|Luke||They better be good ones! With you gone I've been stuck with one irritating escort after another!|
|Guy||All right, calm yourself. Aren't you going to introduce me to your friends?|
| You tell the story of how you met Luke to Guy, his childhood friend. |
The story involves a kidnapping, and various events that followed...
|Guy||Huh, interesting. Sounds like you really came through for my friend Luke.|
|Sara||No, it's the other way around. He was a big help to us! Isn't that right, (user)?|
|Guy||Heh. Well, I'm sure happy to hear that.|
|Luke||So now we're just traveling from country to country. You want to come with?|
|Guy||Aw, man. That sounds like a lot of fun! But I'm afraid there are things I need to do first.|
|Luke||Come on, really?|
|Guy||Aw, don't look at me like that. I'll catch up with you when it's done!|
|Luke||You damn well better!|
|Lippy||Master Luke and Master Guy certainly seem to be close.|
|Sara||Childhood friendships often turn out that way.|
|Silas||Shouldn't we be on our way soon? We don't want to risk the bandits returning.|
|Luke||Hey, I don't remember putting you in charge!|
|Guy||Regardless, Silas is probably right. We should be on our way.|
|Silas||Of course when Guy says it, suddenly he listens...|
|Sara||All right. Hey, Silas... Silas?|
|Lippy||Master Silas? Are you listening?|
|Silas|| ...And why should one of the kingdom's most elite warriors be looking after some royal brat...? |
If Beatrice were to see me like this, I'd hear no end of mockery...
No, no! I must control my frustrations! Escorting a prince── that is exactly the sort of duty that suits a warrior of my stature!
And exceling at such a duty will only lead to greater things.
Why, the knighthood I so richly deserve is almost certainly within my grasp. I need but to persevere... Yes. Yes!
|Lippy||He seems to be as strong of will as he is hard of hearing...|
|Amazing Entrance ──fin──|
|Guy|| What? You want to spar with me? |
Well, all right. If you're a friend of Luke, you're a friend of mine.
But when I spar, I give it my all, ya know!
That's exactly what you were about to ask me to do? Ha! You sure got grit.
Now show me how that looks on the battlefield!
